for being with us. washington has become an ent mow logical wonderland for the obama administration seems to be more obsessed with semantics and sentence con trucks than to capture a killing of terrorists. washington -- while dismissing any sense of proportion when it comes to radical islamists and the war on terror. and for all of that, this was a red letter day. president obama's mantra that al qaeda is on the run today proved wrong yet again. you are looking at pictures of yemen where government officials uncovered an al qaeda plot to capture oil and gas facilities, to fire on foreign embassies, to seize -- news of the foiled plot breaking as the united states is stepping up its drone attacks there. killing at least seven al qaeda terrorists in the southern part of the country. in the broader plot that led to the closings of 19 embassies and facilities and 16 countries still acted tonight with no indication that the threats have in any way diminished. here is state department spokesperson jen saki on the closings and the alerts. >> our embassy remains closed. we're continuing to evalua

was hearing on mr. summers preemptively, which is sort of a standard washington exercise, that i don't like him. because when someone has worked hard for me and on behalf of the american people and i know the quality of those people and i see them getting slapped around in the press for no reason even before they have been nominated for anything, then i want to make sure that somebody is standing up for them. i felt the same way when people were attacking susan rice before she was nominated for anything. so i tend to defend folks that i think i've done a good job and don't deserve attacks. my main criteria for the federal reserve chairman is somebody who understands they have to do a mandate, a critical part of the job is making sure that we keep inflation in check, that our monetary policy is sound, that the dollars sound. those are all critical components of the job and we see what happens when the fed is not paying attention. we saw prior to paul volcker coming into place inflation shooting up in ways that really damaged the real economy. but the other mandate is full employment. and rig

on mr. summer's preemptively, which is a standard washington exercise that i don't like. >> reporter: so tyler, obviously, this is very personal for the president. he has a relationship with larry summers. he didn't like to see the piling on. that might explain leaks we saw over the past couple week complaining that larry summers might be the front runner for the job, the president insisting, though, today he hasn't picked a candidate yet. >> he talked a little bit today about the implantation of obamacare, healthcare reform and the possibility that a government shut down might be used as a weapon in that funding battle. give us some thoughts on that, am amin. >> reporter: he said if you implement something as big as obamacare, as he calls it now and expects there will be glitches here. nonetheless, he said he doesn't like the politics on the republican side threatening a government shut down. he tried to position it as republicans trying to shut down the government to block 30 million americans from getting access to healthcare that, he said, is simply a bad idea. >> thank you very much

the "washington post" publishes new information about what yet more cash that you have taken since you have been governor. this time it was $50,000, apparently, that governor bob mcdonnell took from a virginia beach doctor. the governor took the money from the doctor then turned around and offered that same doctor a seat on a state medical board. but this time, thankfully, there appears to be a saving grace for the governor in that the quo was apparently rejected by the quid. even though the governor took the doctor's 50 grand then offered the doctor that seat on the state medical board, the doctor did not accept the offer. so, saving grace. since governor ultrasound has decided to just be completely u.n. embarrassed by all this, totally unashamed, federal grand jury, grand schmury, it's the commonwealth of opportunity for me. hey, buddy, have i got a deal for you? governor ultrasound is trying to appear untroubled by all the trouble he's in, the other person in virginia politics getting into deeper and deeper political trouble is virginia's attorney general, ken cuccinelli who also took thousan

that is done, then we go on to act of congress and another guy at "the washington post" and back in the 1970s there was a big difference between then and now it is just that these guys have written. collision 2012 is written and there was a similar writing back in the 2008 campaign. all the guys involved, and that is coming out in august. the other one is through the perilous fight, which is by steve bulger, also someone i used to work with closely. we look back at the six weeks during the war of 1812. >> we saw the movie. two let us know what you are reading this summer. post on her facebook page or send us a twitter tweet or send us e-mail at booktv@c-span.org. >> mayor and council chairman, they face each other in one of the most contentious and expensive elections in the recent history. raising nearly $5 million in an attempt to hold onto his seat. and vincent gray race only $2 million. but shortly after he took office in 2011, a candidate for mayor had told "the washington post" that she was paid and promised a job during the election. federal investigators soon discovered that much of b

to some extent. those were a reflection of the attorney general that, oftentimes in washington and elsewhere, policy debates are as much about means as ends. many times they are shared ends. to roll up his sleeves and hear, what is it that's giving you heartburn about the way we are doing business? what are the means we have used historically that perhaps should be revised? there are a couple of them which are significant. the response seems to have been more positive to these new ways. here are two real big changes in terms of how we will do business. if the government -- let me back up. it has always been the case that seeking records or testimony from a reporter is a last resort. if i can get the information through another source, i am not allowed to ask a reporter a question or ask them to testify in the grand jury. there is an exhaustion requirement which has been strengthened. the attorney general himself or herself needs to now sign off. but critically, the department now, if we wish to issue a subpoena for a tape of a demonstration outside of an embassy, that is an unu
